ASTRONOMIQUE: 'BURNING STARS FADE' EP
A self-described “Space Wave” act with points of reference coming from France, the future, and fine art, Astronomique present Burning Stars Fade, an interstellar six-song EP, out today. Astronomique is fronted by Renaissance woman Logan Andra Fongemie, whose Space-Age-a-la-1960s drawings partly inspired the record, and whose vocal range is stretched to the cosmos over hooky, celestial pop-rock. Burning Stars Fade is an impressive introduction to Astronomique that sounds a bit like Ladytron meets dreamy psychedelia meets Carl Sagan.
Astronomique will celebrate the release of Burning Stars Fade with a release show at Cause Spirits and Soundbar, Friday, May 23, with performances by Bollywood and Dan Mariska & the Boys Choir, and a DJ set by SloSlyLove.
